You can never have too many T-shirts, and this splendid polar bear tee will be coveted by everyone. Originally the T-shirt was nothing more than a humble undergarment issued in the early 1900s by the US Navy. It  did not become the wardrobe essential that it is today until the Godfather himself, Marlon Brando, sported a simple white T-shirt in the American classic – A Streetcar Named Desire. With Brando’s animal magnetism,  and the power of this historic film masterpiece, the t-shirt quickly grew in popularity. A simple white shirt can be pretty dull. Not so with Rapanui. This cool polar bear motif, is the perfect tongue-in-cheek design during the winter months. The T-shirt is 100% organic cotton and we recommend you wash it on a cool cycle and hang it up to dry.

Price £25
Sizes S-XL
